I am considering a weeping willow for my back yard. I have not heard good things about them being planted in Salt Lake. What is your opinion, and would I be better going with a different species or will a willow be fine?

Good tree selection depends on your soil and site characteristics. Weeping willows like a lot of water, grow fast and die young. The best thing to do for helping you decide what tree to select is using the Utah State University Tree Browser. Click on this link http://www.treebrowser.org . On left hand side you select the characteristics you want, and then it narrows down the list from over 241 tree species to the species that fit your criteria. It has helpful information with fact sheet on each species and photos of the trees with close up of leaves.
